4 years ago, I bought a new car. It had all the bells and whistles and the all-important (at the time) moon roof. I was pretty happy with it. At least for a bit. Then, about three years ago, I discovered that infant car seats do not fit comfortably in the back seat of my sporty little compact car, and that my toddlers hate having the windows open when we drive. Guess what never gets used?

Will this POS system meet your needs, and more importantly, help you meet your goals?  Not a bad question to ask.

Posted by Gary Labuzetta on Mon, Oct 31, 2016 @ 07:00 AM

It’s that time of year again - the World Series! Thirty Major League Baseball teams play 162 games during the course of the season which starts in April, but only 10 make the playoffs come October. The winners of the League Championship Series advance to the World Series - the best team in the American League versus the best team in the National League. 

 

So, what can we in the pharmacy world learn from the teams that have survived to play each other in October? Are they the teams that spend the most on payroll? Or, is it something else?
